Roasted rice, green tea leaves, and matcha come together in this blend to create a brilliant green cup of nutty, toasty goodness. Early summer leaves provide a hint of grassiness, while the matcha supplies a smooth, creamy umami. Half the leaves of Sugimoto’s Sencha means half the caffeine, meaning you can peacefully enjoy all 3 steepings. Packaged in a re-sealable foil pouch, this economically-sized package keeps tea fresh, allowing for daily enjoyment.
Young spring and early summer leaves come together to make Japan’s most traditional loose leaf tea; Sencha (煎茶). Our Sencha is steamed in the Fukamushi (深蒸し), or “deep-steamed” style characteristic of southern Shizuoka, and then finished with a high roasting; the specialty of the Sugimoto family. The high heat finishing roast brings out a rich aroma and lingering umami finish that is consistent even after multiple steepings. Packaged in a resealable foil pouch, your tea will be kept fresh for months of daily enjoyment.
